The volatility of 1,3-D in the environment and results of metabolism studies in plants assure that there is no reasonable expectation of finite residues to be incurred in/on any raw agricultural commodities when end-use product formulations containing 1,3-D are applied according to label directions. Therefore, this fumigant does not require food tolerances. EPA is providing an opportunity, through this notice, for interested parties to provide risk management proposals or otherwise comment on risk management for the soil fumigant group. A complete list of the mitigation options can be found in the following document, ‘‘Risk Mitigation Options to Address Bystander and Occupational Exposures from Soil Fumigant Applications,’’ docket number EPA– HQ–OPP–2005–0124-0048. A Reader’s Guide has been created to provide an organizational structure to the 1,3-D Docket, to allow readers to more easily access and navigate the various entries contained in the 1,3-D Docket, and to facilitate public comment. You will find this guide at EPA–HQ–OPP–2005–01240046. EPA is applying the principles of public participation to all pesticides undergoing reregistration and tolerance reassessment. The Agency’s Pesticide Tolerance Reassessment and Reregistration; Public Participation Process, published in the Federal Register on May 14, 2004, (69 FR 26819)(FRL–7357–9) explains that in conducting these programs, EPA is tailoring its public participation process to be commensurate with the level of risk, extent of use, complexity of issues, and degree of public concern associated with each pesticide. Although 1,3-D has undergone reregistration, the Agency plans to follow a similar public participation process for the human health revised risk assessment to ensure that the risk assessment approaches are consistent, and that risk management decisions for the five other soil fumigants consider the relative risks and benefits of each chemical. While the Agency does not anticipate making changes to the decisions made in the 1998 RED, if, at the conclusion of the soil fumigant assessment and risk management process, EPA determines that it is appropriate to modify its 1998 risk mitigation decision for 1,3-D considering the relative risks and benefits of others, EPA may relax certain measures or consider adding new ones. All comments should be submitted using the methods in ADDRESSES, and must be received by EPA on or before the closing date. Comments and VerDate Mar 15 2010 03:08 Aug 19, 2011 Jkt 223001 proposals will become part of the Agency Docket for 1,3-D. Comments received after the close of the comment period will be marked ‘‘late’’ EPA is not required to consider these late comments. B. What is the Agency’s Authority for Taking this Action? Section 4(g)(2) of FIFRA as amended directs that, after submission of all data concerning a pesticide active ingredient, ‘‘the Administrator shall determine whether pesticides containing such active ingredient are eligible for reregistration,’’ before calling in product specific data on individual end-use products and either reregistering products or taking other ‘‘appropriate regulatory action.’’ 1,3-D was deemed eligible for reregistration in December 1998. EPA has developed a revised human health risk assessment for 1,3-D to assess the proposed post-plant use in established vineyards, and also in order to make available current and accurate information on this pesticide which will be considered as EPA assesses risk and develops risk management decisions for the five other soil fumigants.

The Agency’s risk assessments and other related documents also are available in the chlorflurenol docket. Chlorflurenol is an herbicide and a plant growth regulator registered for use in agricultural, commercial, and residential settings. Chlorflurenol has no food/feed uses and, therefore, has no tolerances associated with its use. EPA has reviewed chlorflurenol through the public participation process that the Agency uses to involve the public in developing pesticide reregistration decisions. Through these programs, EPA is ensuring that all pesticides meet current health and safety standards. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tracy L.
